and especially if you come in with not that much experience as both lincoln and obama did, now you know you learn from that the most important thing we got to figure out in the second term is how much do they learn from their mistakes and their strength in the first term. the boldness he's showing that's his decision that's what he's learned and we'll see if that works. >> rose: john heilemann what do you read as the people he's chosen for his national security team how he sees his second term on that front. >> well gosh charlie, that's a, it's obviously a team that's gone through its turmoil. there was turmoil around the question whether susan rice will be secretary of state. he decided not to put her forward. there's turmoil now around chuck hagel. this is, people have pointed out, this is a bunch of seasoned white guys, they are a team that's nothing like as star studded as the team he had in his first term. again i think that reflects to some large extent the degree of something doris was just talking about was the president has swayinger right now and a lot of confidence. and forepolicy, he
and let i believe us nature of society. >> and i say obama care does nothing to attack the core problem which is pring, whh is why obama care was able to pass. >> and the republicans won't like it because i say the only efficient player in this marketplace is medicare. >> rose: it's the only efficient player yet a lot of people look at medicare and say it is the cost element of entitlements that will bankrupt the country. >> well, what's going to bankrupt the country is the continuation of what we have today. medicare, the situation i describe where you know someone pays-- well if you look at the-- the md anderson cancer centre is charging 1.5 for generic aspirin tylenol pill am you can buy them on amazon for 1.5 cents. >> rose: exactly. you can buy it on amazon for 1.5 cents and your hospital marks it up you say here 10,000 percent. >> but not to medicare because medicare is ordered by congress only to pay hospitals for their cost, their actual costs including their overhead and everything else. so medicare takes the position in this particular ca thatf you are paying 1791 a day for yo
, just a second or two shy of one hour, president obama delivers his fifth state of the union address. the first state of the union of his second term in office after having been re-elected in november. it is a speech that touched on so many domestic issues, principally first and foremost the budget deficit. went through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just wa
president obama delivered his first state of the union address since his re-election. seated among the lerkz and house chambers were americans who symbolize the the priorities including young undocumented immigrants and victims of begun vie -- gun violence. he became emotional preventing further shootings just as he was in the aftermath of sandy hook. he sought his vision for a stronger middle class. he spoke of immigration reform, raising the minimum wage and energy independence. quoted john f. kennedy 1962 speech saying the substitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. you agenda he made few concessions to republicans. it remans to be seen whether the president can break away from the bitter partisanship and dysfunction of his first term and whether he can strike the grand bargains the country needs. >> the greatest nation on worth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crises to the next we can't do it. [applause] let's agree, let's agree right here right now to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always up
the obamas team was second rate. what did you mean? >> i'm very, very concerned about what i see happening, charlie, in the national security arena. i think the administration's policies are terribly flawed. i think the damage they're doing to the department is enormous with the sequester. i think the president's performance, by my standards, in the international arena, the middle east and so forth, is worse than many of my friends and colleagues see his domestic policies. i see him heading for the exits in the middle east, getting out of iraq, no follow on agreement, getting out of afghanistan as quickly as he can. jawboning the iranians on the nuclear program. >> rose: is it a problem with the president and his policies or is it with chuck hagel, john brennan, john kerry? >> it's all the president. the president picks the people that he puts around him, too. with respect to chuck hagel and brennan, defense and c.i.a. just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor and that's not my judgment, that's the judgment of senator
to work on this during the obama years, i started during the bush years but by the time i figured out how to do the screenplay it was already '07. and by the time i got to the first draft we were a few month as which from the election. the o 8ee election. and i have been work og on lincoln all through the first term of office. the president obama had. and you know, i consider myself a person of the left. and i have left impatience with the pace of change and i am aware that people suffer terribly while they're waiting for change to happen. the most vulnerable people suffer the most terribly. and i'm a gay man and i've been waiting a long time for, you know, fallen franchisement and i'm still not there. but watching this president and reading about that president, i really began to think long and hard about the processes of electoral democracy and the pace of change in an electoral democracy and what's possible, you know. they're not the same people by any means and the situation is not the same. t ihin you could say you could argue that barack obama faced in '08 a situation, you know, as
secretary of the treasury, former economic advisor of president obama, and former president of harvard university. >> and president obama believes there are some very important principles here about what kind of process there should be as the president negotiates with congress, about the need for balance between spending and revenues as we address national problems, about hooking at all different areas as we adess these things. >> rose: and do you believe -- >> and protecting the middle class at a time when inequality in our country really has taken off in a very, very dramatic way. >> rose: we conclude with rethinking education with sal khan, founder of khan academy, his new book is called the one world schoolhouse education reimagined. >> you know, especially if you talk about some of the core college course office the late high school course it is things right now you have 75, 70 percent ostudtsho go t community college have to take remedial math and usually don't find that out until they start showing up and paying tuition, no one wants this to happen and the biggest predictor of
the obama health-care reform address that? >> i think it made actually the economics a little bit worse, but it moved us more in a social direction. >> rose: made access better and economics worse. >> that's correct. and we haven't really dealt with the economics. >> rose: it really only dealt with access. >> that's right. and lastly on the medicaid front because it is really driven to indigent families, very complicated medical issues, i would leave that one to experts. it's not the biggest portion of the cost. it's medicare and how it relates. and then secondly social security. also in medicare, i would be, for one for raising medicare tax, i have no problem with that. this is, we're talking about, again, something that is part of the fabric of who we are as americans. and you can't just take what's good and not feel accountable and responsible for paying for it. and i think that goes with it. >> rose: it was said at the time of passage and argued by the obama administration that the health-care reform put forward by him was deficit neutral. >> i think we're going to find out. i think
of the national economic council, in that role he was central to president obama's the response to the financial crisis, he is here to talk about the scwes officer imposed in summer of 2011 and intended as a consequence so unacceptable congress and the president would have to agree on revenue increases and spending cuts in order to avoid it. with three days to go they have not been able to do that, the first $85 billion about spending cuts will take effect on march 1st, ben bernanke testified to cock earlier today he promised to extend the federal reserve stimulus measures and make made a direct appeal to avoid the sequester. >> the congress and the administration should consider replacing the sharp front loaded spending cuts required by the sequestration with policies that reduce the federal deficit more gradually in the near term but more substantially in the longer run. >> rose: i am pleased to have larry summers back at this table. >> good to be with you, charlie. >> rose: so first off, was -- what do you believe will be the impact if as most people now believe the sequester takes effect? >>
